MFT Automation, an international leader in the design and manufacture of automated packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical, medical, food and beverage, is proud to unveil its latest packaging solution – the MFT Tray Former.

  • OSHA-compliant guarding with interlocked doors

  • Pneumatic flaps with LoTo air supply regulation
  • Infrared sensor that allows for accurate count using double-detect and overlap detection
  • Compact and mobile design
  • Highly customizable to fit specific applications and needs.

“We are very excited to introduce this new technology to the market,” said President Peter Nordling. “We have been working very hard behind the scenes to enhance our product lines, and this technology is something we feel compliments are existing product lines perfectly.”
